"Alabaster Factory." Cairo Off The Beaten Path Tip by Sharrie

Cairo Off The Beaten Path: 191 reviews and 321 photos


Alabaster Factory. There are some other interesting items to bring home; my favorite is a CARTOUCHE of my name englaved on a silver pendant (I think it's about US$15) which I now used as my keychain. The very popular souvenir by most is PAPYRUS with hieroglypic signs & Egyptian divinities represented. Very interesting & unique gifts!
